"Synopsys...and SGI...announced they have entered into a strategic alliance to accelerate the performance and availability of electronic design verification tools for the Linux(R) operating system (OS) running on Intel(R) Architecture-based computer systems. The companies will focus on performance tuning of Synopsys' verification tools, including the VCS(TM) Verilog simulator, and will encourage other electronic design automation (EDA) vendors to provide related tools on the Linux platform. The companies are jointly demonstrating the first results of this effort at the SC99 conference."

"Linux is an Open Source OS that includes true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, proper memory management and other features that are consistent with UNIX(R) operating systems. Recent independent market research indicates that Linux is the fastest growing operating system in the world."

"Synopsys was the first major EDA company to offer high-performance Verilog simulation and code coverage tools on Linux. SGI has been a major force in advancing the features and capabilities of the Linux OS and has contributed key technologies to further its scalability, reliability and performance. Specifically, SGI is working with the Open Source community to contribute its journaled file system, XFS(TM), as well as multiprocessing and interoperability technologies."
